Open Tuesday - Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 
The traveling digital exhibit features poems, illustrations, and videos that showcase refugee resettlement in our community. At the heart of the exhibit is an interactive touchscreen experience, allowing community visitors to browse content and participate. When visitors interact with digital creative tools such as Emerge, Thread, or other analog activities, their voices will be incorporated into the exhibit in a variety of ways—from a scrolling group poem to posted cards printed from the Emerge web application.
Using the newest technology to connect us to one of our oldest technologies—the written word—Traveling Stanzas: Writing Across Borders celebrates the diverse cultural identity of our democracy and engages a national civic dialogue through the intimate and inclusive voice of poetry.
